Hello all,

I have a birthday coming up, and the Mrs asked “What would you like for your Birthday? Something for your drone perhaps?

So I need your input.

I’m thinking about getting the original Smart Controller which, if I’m correct is now compatible with my Mavic Air 2?

I have been finding it difficult to see my mobile phone screen in the harsh Aussie sun ☀️ even with a hood. Or should I wait for DJI to possibly include compatibility for my MA2 with the RC Pro. Big difference in cost however?

Decisions….Decisions?

Mavic 3 pro? LOL

JK... sorry but you asked... the title didn't say which controller should I get? ;)

Just get the latest and greatest DJI drone combo package. This assumes you are the greatest husband and worth of a great gift.

I have a MA2 and M2P and use the SC for both . I'm in Vegas ,NV And the SC in bright sunlight is ok i still get refection off the screen. I was using a Ipad and it was ok . It's easier to set up and fly with the SC. Good Luck and HaPPy DAy!

I see that the Original Smart Controller is no longer in production. (My guess is that it is not recognized by FAA for remote I.D. ) DJI is offering the DJI RC controller (that came with my Mavic 3 Classic for an additional $306) Unsure of the compatibility with your Air 2, however, I really like it. I had a distance max out at 4.7 miles along the coast.
Happy Birthday!!!

In the name of disclosure I sell tablets some of the best around and certainly among the brightest and best looking screens you can find. Eagle View Aerials 2600 nit tablet is on that level of the brightest tablet available. The V71 Pro is a phone, GPS, Camera and flys every application available. I use Litchi and DJI Fly primarily and I'm a Part 107 flyer. The picture on the screen is unbelievable in bright sun. It's a little heavier than it's competitor but one big difference is the V71 Pro comes with about $150 worth of accessories including a terrific mount with additional liquid level that can be used on tripods or other combinations of setups. Average battery time is about 10 hours, the unit doesn't get hot in your hands for long length flights and this tablet is virtually indestructible. See my website www.eagleviewaerials.com for all the specs. You can get the whole outfit to include the mounting accessories for $650 and if you mention to me if you order that your a premium pilot here I'll ensure a discount. I'm a Carlisle, Pennsylvania retired Air Force MSgt. Fair, honest, and I and my company back up what I say. NO GLARE
